first sample was a snifter at the brewpub
a: served in a branded snifter, the beer is a medium amber in color, sporting an off-white head, retains a low ring and surface coating
s: full, sweet rye and light toasted malts on the nose, caramel, smooth spice, fresh orange hops, heady nose packed with grain and hop character
m: carbonation around moderate, smooth on the palate, with a medium body
t: nice blend of malty rye and lightly toasted sugars, good spice and pepper, deliciously bold rye flavors well complimented by a fresh, sappy pine hop profile with citrus rind notes, fully bittered and oily finish
o: loved this beer, big on the rye but not overwhelmingly so, nice hop profile to boot
Bomber from Lou into Reubens glass. I get lots of dense pine and grapefruit here, alongside a full, starting sweet but eventually dryingly spicy rye presence. Big, citrus oil bitter. Alcoholic heat. I preferred the in-house draft a bit more - but really, can’t beat the source. Leaving original scores.
